TRIBES is a social analysis, a raw portrait of occidental society.   Groups of families and friends set themselves up by the sea equipped to spend a day in the sun. All this, harmoniously juxtaposed, seems like a poem of customs that reveal through humour, colour and tenderness, the profundity of a whole society.   These photos of modern-day beach groups are inspired by the studio portraits of ancient tribes who proudly posed in traditional costumes next to their prized possessions.The sky and the sea become the painted backdrop of the studio and the sand seems as if sprinkled on the floor
